I forgot over and over again while reading this book that it was self-published. For the first half of the book, it rivaled some of my favorite fantasy series. The author is so comfortable in the fantasy world he created that the scenes he wrote are effortlessly visualized and the magic realistically portrayed. My first genre love was high fantasy and reading this book makes me want to pull out all my old favorites and re-read them. I will absolutely read another book by R. Janvier del Valle.

By appearances, Luca is a normal young man with aspirations to become a swordmaster. By how badly he wants this, he would seem to have the makings of becoming the best swordmaster ever, especially since has a wooden leg. But what Luca doesn't know is that he is nowhere near normal. Little does he know that his very birth was a controversy, and before too long his shadowy past catches up to him.

If you're a fan of high fantasy, swordplay, and magic, then this book is for you. R. Janvier Del Valle
